This season, go on a chic adventure with ‘sportif’ aesthetic

Where luxury style meets sporty casual

When we think of summer wardrobe staples, what usually comes to mind are the perennial florals, the crisp linen pieces, and woven accessories. These closet must-haves add spice to any exotic gateway, merging style with function. But this time, summer is also an invitation to be active, a new aesthetic is being introduced, elevating what we love about athleisure and sports luxe.

The sportif aesthetic is best defined as the middle ground where luxury style and sporty casual meet. It puts a twist on classic silhouettes, think of cardigans with trousers, suit ensembles, and daytime cocktail dresses, with design elements usually seen on sportswear. The perfect example of this can be seen in Kate Spade New York’s spring 2024 collection. For its latest releases, the fashion brand looked at the springtime sport golf for inspiration, producing a line of garments and accessories, which is full of color and joy.

“Spring 2024 delivers on the brand’s promise of femininity and joyful expression, this season designed with a more relaxed positioning that creates a sense of tension. Styling is polished yet undone, constructed and unconstructed, with vibrant colors that are complemented by soft tones,” the brand says. “The collection brings a “sportif” aesthetic with casual silhouettes, clean lines, and a modern take on suiting, all with a classic Kate Spade twist.”

Fans of the brand know that Kate Spade New York is big on novelty pieces. It embraces the spirit of the sport through its Tee Time novelty collection, Among the pieces that caught our eyes are the Tee Time 3D Golf Ball crossbody bag, Sam Icon Astrotuf fabric small tote, and Tee Time Wicker 3D Windmill top-handle bag, which are imbued with elements seen on a golf course.
